    Great new paintings. The military definitely inspires you.

    LtPlissken: Thank you. To be honest it's more depressing than inspiring but I get by. Drawing is a great way to vent.

    I want this piece to look dark and gritty. Still lot to do but I think I'm progressing a bit. Also experimenting on lost edges after reading Mattias Snyggs article found here. The fact that not everything has to be shown is becoming more and more important.

    The viking was just a doodle inspired by THIS!

    I am a fan of Manowar. I think that I have started to listen their music, when I was about 14 years old. Today, I am not really crazy about their songs, but I still respect them. I am glad that their battle hymn inspired you.

    I like how you improved the background on the painting of the soldier carrying another soldier. It almost looks like brushed metal. I also see that you are experimenting with new brushes, what is I think really good and I honestly think that some great effects lie in using a correct brush at the correct time. Great, great , great. I f you ask me, the lower part of the painting should go more darker related to the other parts.
    The barbarian;If you have the barbarian on a separate layer from the background, then I suggest that you double the barbarian layer, put it to multiply and then reduce it's opacity if needed, but like this the character is too light. You should even try to increase the charecter's contrast. Sorry for being too confuse. Good luck in your further work.

    Hey Rotor, your update of the guy doing the fireman's carry is now looking real tight. The viking shows a lot of promise as well. Stand easy Sergeant Rotor!!

    LtPlissken: It is nice to hear you also like Manowar. I think I started listening to this stuff when I was ten or something. Also thanks for your support and critique, I really appreciate it. I'll work on the piece some more.
    Turbosnail: Thanks man! I'll leave the viking be for now though, it was just a sketchie.
    Black Spot: Thank you. I'm not really sure, it feels like I'm not progressing at all. I think I need to loosen up a bit.

    Here are some small doodlies. Thanks for looking.

    I prefer the last one as it is looser and as such has more life to it.

    Your imaginative stuff is looking good.
    About the one from post #225 (the on with the two gasmask men). Perhaps you could add some strong but very focused highlight on the parts that are metal. Perhaps just on the standing guy's face, just to create a stronger focus point.

    bridgeman.. yess.. more BRIDGEMAN! Theres some definate improvement going on in this thread. You said that you feel like you need to loosen up a bit, what exactly did you mean by that? If I had to guess i'd say you're talking about your figures! They are pretty static. get some jesture drawing going on! draw some people who are off balance, or contourted or falling over or something! Throw your space marines off a bridge, or make them do the limbo. Pay attention to how your character's shoulders/ hips relate. Good to see your experimenting with brushes and textures. Love that painting with the soldier carrying the lamp, really looks like it's illuminating the place.

    Black Spot: Thanks. It was a 30min TD challenge that I partly missed.
    Fumble: Thank you. I will give it stronger contrast once I get the shapes right.
    ChromaticCodex: Thank you. That is exactly what I meant, along with linework and drawing overall. It's just a that I'm in a tight spot right now with very limited time and space. I will take your advice though!
    Parsakoira: Ha-woooo! What's up man? Thanks for the kind words, love your new stuff. I'm working on getting the two soldiers done in grayscale, after which I will colour the piece. I really want to push my work up a notch and I think I made a bit of success in the chemical trooper piece.

    Here's some a5 sketchies, goofy self-portrait for an assignment, (I want to get to college) and a new piece I'm working on greatly inspired by Tsutomu Nihei's fantastic Blame! visual novels.
